Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Designers

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s diffusion line D&G has set as many trends as their mainline Dolce & Gabbana collections, but in 2008 it defined some of the hot trends picked up by the UK high street.

D&G’s folkloric spring 08 silhouettes saw ruffles, clashing floral prints and patchwork layers setting high street designers’ imaginations into overdrive. For autumn 08, tartan and bright plaids stormed the catwalks, a trend which translated easily onto the high street. And in spring 09, the nautical theme which pervaded the brand’s catwalk presentation has resurfaced in high street collections from Matalan, River Island and New Look.

As if the company’s enormous turnover (in excess of £2 billion annually) were not enough to confirm the brand’s inclusion on the 2008 power list, the design pair’s influence on the British high street cements it.
